    ISU a 14-point favorite over Kansas

    Just traded text messages with Ken Miller. Vegas will have Iowa State as an opening 14-point favorite over Kansas next Saturday.

    damn! when was the last time we were a 2 touchdown favorite in league play? I could get used to this!


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Too high imo.
    Hopefully we play up to our ability.

    Either we lay an egg and lose because we're looking forward to Nebraska while Kansas shows up to play (since this is their best chance at a win the rest of the season), or we are ahead by 14 or more before the half. I don't see any inbetween.

    Like they used to say on that old game show:

    "No whammy! No whammy! No whammy!"

    A loss to KU would be a severe blow after a great win at Texas.

    I doubt Rhoads will ever let that happen.

    We are definitely the team they're looking at as their best chance.

    14 points is a lot. They're a team that we ought to beat by more than that, but those are scary odds.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I hope this game is over by the end of 1st Q in ISU's favor. We need to make a statement after this Texas win.

    I just want a "W" in the win column.

    Too high? KU has been blown out by every big 12 team they've played. And to add to that their starting QB went out with an injury to his throwing shoulder and their backup went out with a concussion.

    I would say that obviously theres the 'any given saturday' thing, but if we show up prepared and ready (which PR has shown us they will do... we've tended to win the games we're supposed to), this should be an easy win. Even if theres a chance at it being a trap game ,you still have to set the line fairly high on this one considering KU's results this year.

    Also... as far as KU's best chance at a win, id have to give that to their game the next week in lawrence, vs Colorado. Also reading this morning that Cody Hawkins may be back in, as Hansen may be done for the season with a ruptured spleen.

    I agree the team has to focus and not look ahead, but CU is a much better chance for a win for KU.

    ISU = 2 conference wins
    CU = 0 conference wins

    What was the line on the NIU game? I am not necessarily saying what the score differential will be, but normalizing it to what the spread normally is. Maybe KU is THAT bad, but they did beat GT.

    Any given saturday. Gotta do everything in your power not to have a letdown now. I'd like to see us win by about 28. But I could care less what Vegas says/wants. I'll be happy with a 3-2 Iowa State victory just because i'm that kind of fan.
